This is disgusting!
During the Seattle Pride parade, an organization set up a booth that encouraged children to throw toy bricks at images of prominent Republicans.
A video recorded by Katie Daviscourt of The Post Millennial shows a man cheering on a young child as they repeatedly attempt to throw a plush toy brick at a wall-like display. The display features a large hole in the center with a sign reading “Basket of Deplorables” and displays pictures of notable Republicans, including former President Donald Trump, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene from Georgia, and Representative Mitch McConnell from Kentucky. The display also includes pictures of Republican-appointed Supreme Court Justices Amy Coney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh.
According to Fox, The organization behind the booth is Beyond These Walls, a 501c3 organization based in the Pacific Northwest that aims to achieve justice and liberation for incarcerated LGBTQ individuals. Neither Seattle Pride nor Beyond These Walls responded to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
Other videos from the event have gained significant attention on social media. In one video, a group of teenagers who identify as transgender marched through the streets and distributed pamphlets to the crowd. One person wore a shirt stating, “I don’t want to look or be cis,” while another held a sign that read “Queers Bash Back.” A person with yellow hair and a pink sign reading “Stand Up, Fight Back” handed a pamphlet to a young child in the audience.
Seattle Pride maintains its policy, implemented in 2021, that prohibits LGBTQ officers from marching in uniform during the parade. Previously, members of the Seattle Police Department had participated in the parade while in uniform since 1994. Following the Black Lives Matter protests and riots, Seattle Pride announced the ban on uniformed police officers due to the LGBTQ community’s history of distrust towards law enforcement, the criminalization of LGBTQIA individuals, and instances of police violence against marginalized groups, as stated by Noah Wagoner, the interim Executive Director of Seattle Pride, in an interview with a local newspaper.
